About David Sánchez 

Recognized around the world as one of the finest saxophonists of his generation, Sánchez merges jazz syntax with the musical dialects of his native Puerto Rico and other Caribbean sources. Bringing a mix of mainstream jazz with Pan-African influences to audiences around the globe, his original compositions, like the 2018 album Carib, are inspired by melodies and rhythms from the Afro-Puerto Rican and Haitian traditions.
